Sopwith. Самолеты 1919-1920 годов

<...>
  Самолет Sopwith Schneider 1919 был небольшим гоночным гидропланом с мотором Cosmos Jupiter мощностью 450 л. с. Его построили специально для участия в гонках на Кубок Шнейдера. В 1919 году гонки не состоялись по причине плотного тумана в районе проведения состязаний. На следующий год Sopwith Schneider 1919 доработали в самолет Rainbow аэродромного базирования с мотором ABC Dragonfly мощностью 320 л. с. Rainbow разбился в сентябре 1923 года.
